No Green, No Blue

WE MADE IT!
During this Green Week we have planted 5,446 TREES in Brazil. The WeForest project focuses on reconnecting remaining patches of the Atlantic forest through forest corridors so that wildlife can continue to reproduce and thrive.
Together we have taken a step further to preserve the environment. Let’s continue to take care and protect what you love.
Did you know, that the oceans are the main sink of global CO2? They are responsible for up to 50% of all the CO2 that is absorbed from the atmosphere and stored for a longer period of time. The carbon is mainly absorbed by plankton, fish, corals, and algae. However, we are currently overusing this capacity. Global warming and over absorption of CO2 lead to higher acidity within the oceans, which in turn makes it harder for the organisms that absorb the CO2 to survive.
Therefore, we need other CO2 sinks. The second largest sink are forests, where CO2 is absorbed through photosynthesis and oxygen is released in turn. But as you could see this summer in the Amazon forest (among others), also forests are under heavy stress and face deforestation. We therefore have decided to team up with WeForest in Brazil, who plant trees and by doing so create wildlife corridors for one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. So, this project does not only help to capture carbon, but also helps Amazonian wildlife. You can find more information on the project, as well as an interactive map on their website.
This year, we are going to turn black week green, and together with you we will plant one tree per order placed from the 24th of November to the 2nd of December. Help us to protect the oceans. No Green, no Blue.

The Whale is our DNAFull post
When a blue whale is underwater, its skin seems to merge with the sea it lives in. Only the rings of light dancing over its back allow us to see an animal of impossible proportions. As soon as the whale begins to turn itself towards the seafloor and flicks its tail up, the rest of its body will vanish into the blue. It will be a creature between two worlds, not quite here and not quite there until only the trace of its tail is left behind it like an echo. Whales are works of art.
The Colours of MoroccoFull post
In February, TWOTHIRDS travelled to Morocco. The name is packed with potential, meaning “where the sun sets” in the native Arabic, and to surfers, signposting some of the world’s best lineups. Even so, Morocco still divides opinion. Everybody who had been there already either raved about it, or warned us to stay clear. This made us even more curious as to what we’d find.
Chapter II: Urban CommuteFull post
The morning light streams into the street as wheels spin into motion and people move like water. Finding the path of least resistance. Spokes and gears are in conversation, click-clacking their teeth together. As the gradient grows, thighs burn like candles: warmly. We’re cycling again.

Our team at TWOTHIRDS is not only producing sustainable clothing for you, but also stands completely behind the whole idea and science that for example, the “Fridays for Future” movement and scientists all over the world represent.
